Having straight teeth not only helps with being able to clean your teeth thoroughly and preventing dental complications, straight teeth can also affect a person’s general well being, self-esteem and confidence. Our dentists can advise you on the best type of brace to suit your requirements and budget.
Our Dentists Vimal and Bijal are both experienced invisalign acredited providers, and we carry out a good number of cases between us.Often orthodontists request extractions to carry out orthodontic treatment, however, according to current concepts, it is better and quicker to expand the arch shape, and avoid extractions to straighten the teeth. As nature put the teeth there in the first place for a reason, where possible, non-extraction orthodontics also gives the patient a more natural facial profile and better function. There are however a limited number of cases where there is a skeletal discrepancy, and extractions are unavoidable to be able to give a good cosmetic result.
How does Invisalign Work?
This type of brace uses a barely noticeable, custom-made, removable set of clear aligners that put gentle pressure on the teeth that need moving. As you work through a series of these, they gently straighten your teeth to the final position you would like. Teeth straightening has been revolutionised by this innovative process and literally millions of people have benefited from this simple treatment for a better smile.
Firstly, we take photos and an impression of your teeth, which is then sent off to Invisalign. They then create a 3D animation of your teeth, and can show how they will move to align them into your ideal position. This can be used for your treatment planning and to make your custom set of aligners.
Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It is successful in treating crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, overjets, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, your orthodontist can use these special clear aligners in all or part of many treatment plans.
